AVCA and the Worship Development Role

Many of you know that I have been involved in a worship development role with AVCA for the last two years. This contract with AVCA will end next week, 31st January 2007. Here’s part of the letter Peter Downes (National director of AVCA) wrote to the churches last week explaining the role finishing, in case you have not caught up with this news:

“Greetings Everyone.

Over the last two years the Movement has benefitted greatly by the role that Di Hocking has fulfilled as our Worship Development person.  Many of you have given testimony to me of the value that Di has been to you and your worship communities. Unfortunately at the end of this month Di’s two year contract comes to an end. Financial resources don’t stretch enough for us as a Movement to be able to continues Di’s role and to resource the many other goals and plans that we have, so alas, we have decided not to renew the contract.

We want to convey sincerely our thanks and gratitude to Di for a job well done.  Not renewing her contract is in no way a reflection of how she has carried out her role, or of us lessening the value with which we regard worship in our movement.” There’s more in this letter but I’ll cut it short there.

As part of the changes surrounding me at the moment, both within the local church (YVV) and with this national role concluding, on Feb 12, I will be taking long service leave for a couple of months to catch my breath a bit.

I have really enjoyed the privilege of being able to participate with the mission of AVCA. I wish the AVCA board well as they focus on new goals for the coming year.

It’s been great meeting so many different, crazy and amazing God-followers. I hope we’ll all keep in touch.
